    Would the truck have overturned if Zimmerman had not been following it?

    Frankly, I think he profiled the truck as the type that would overturn. Likely based on make & model. Shameful.

    Was it a Skittles and/or iced tea delivery truck?

    May not have done it if the occupants were black and wearing hoodies.

    This is ridiculous. Wasn't the homeless man that Zimmerman defended against the son of a police LT black? What about the kids he's tutoring? They are black as well. Rest assured Zimmerman is not a racist, he's also not white. :rolleyes:

    I'm not sure racism works the way you think it does.

    I am sure people find racism in anything they want, even when it doesn't exist.

    Not saying racism doesn't exit, it does in all races. It was not a factor in this case.

    ----------

    I imagine, Zimmerman tutored black kids because he was a racist pretending not to be a racist. Probably the same reason he voted for Obama, to prove he wasn't a racist.

    I accept that that is your opinion. :)

    Apologies, I shouldn't have involved myself in a PRSI thread.

    Talking about racism, how come no one mentions Al Sharpton and Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson? Two of the biggest racists in America

    Exactly, Al Sharpton is a prime example of what I meant about finding racism when it doesn't exist. He's a race baiter, and makes a killing off of blaming everything on race.

    Only white people can be racists? Why can't a Latino guy hate black people, too? (Not saying he does, just amazed by the only whites can hate blacks line)
    Because they deserved to be ignored.

    No I have already stated that racism exist in all races. The reason this became such big news was that it fit the Al Sharpon race baiting mold "white racist murdered black boy and got away with it".

    Turns out he's Hispanic so they have to run with the hate anyway, too late to turn back.

    you do realize that being hispanic doesn't mean he can't also be 100% white? Or 100% black, or a number of other racial description for that matter.

    Sure he's mixed, everyone knows he's of mixed race. Obama is half white, yet he's still the first black president.

    Zimmerman is clearly not "white", you can look at him to see that.


    Alfonzo is great at explaining stuff here.

    And he still needs kneecapped about every other year about as soon as he's finished recovery from the last one.

    Why are people so bitter when someone claims race was involved, like your defending your home team?

    I've been wittnessing people give complete trust into Zimmerman's statement regardless of how many lies where caught, and it seems it's all for the complete refusal to recognize that race could have played a part in Zimmerman's actions. Zimmerman could have stated that Trayvon turned into the incredible Hulk and people would run with that story just to excuse the possibility of racial profiling.

    that's because in American culture there hasn't been such a thing as "half black"....historically American society considers you as Black if you have ANY black ancestry.

    It's curious how obsessed some people are with denying Obama's identity as black

    Not sure what you're not getting here. I agree Obama is black. Using the same logic Zimmerman is brown, Hispanic, or whatever you want to call it....he's not white.

    ----------

    There is a difference between complete trust in his statements and the fact that there is no evidence to the contrary. Zimmerman's statements whether 100% true or 10% true are backed up by the forensic evidence.

    There is little to no evidence to prove otherwise, and we live in a country that presumes innocent until proven guilty. There isn't enough evidence to convict him, and as a matter of fact the evidence points to the fact that he was truthful.

    you do realize that "hispanic" is not a racial designation? It's not addressing the same thing as saying somebody is white or black? I'm asking again because I get the impression you believe that Zimmerman can't be white because he's hispanic

    How about brown, Latino or Peruvian? Will that satisfy your nitpicking? Bottom line, not white.:rolleyes:
